Museum galleries

London Transport Museum occupies the original Victorian flower market and the Museum Galleries span two floors. Perfectly combining heritage with modernity, the Galleries provide a truly unique location for memorable events against a background of London icons. The versatile space transports guests through the ages and offers the opportunity to explore world recognisable red Routemaster, early tube carriages and original Metropolitan trains.

Much of the collection housed at London Transport Museum is interactive, with this amplified in the new Future Engineers gallery where the budding tube drivers of tomorrow can jump on a driving simulators. Beneath a stunning glass ceiling, the Galleries can be transformed for a host of events including private dining, cocktail receptions and product launches. Working with a select list of preferred suppliers, the Museum is able to deliver slick events in a central location.
